FYE. Transition. Connect. Engage.

Logo: "Stars Week: Oklahoma City University 2013-2014"Many new challenges are faced during the first year in college. The First-Year Experience (FYE) program at OCU is designed to give you the skills to be successful in an academic community both inside and outside the classroom.

The first year at OCU begins with Stars Week and OCUReads and ends with Fire and Water, a powerful ceremony that celebrates your success. In between, you may be involved with OCU Leads, Fabulous 50 Freshmen, Constellation Groups, Phi Eta Sigma, a freshmen scholastic honor society, or the Honors program.  Liberal Arts Seminars, courses designed for new students by faculty passionate about what they teach, explore contemporary themes in new and energizing ways.

The First-Year Experience program facilitates the successful academic and co-curricular transition of new undergraduate students in to the Oklahoma City University community by supporting first-year students through an orientation program, providing opportunities for engagement across campus and connecting students to resources to promote retention, academic and personal growth.
